Netlist and Ultra-X Enhance High Capacity Memory Testing for Servers in the IT Industry

January 19, 2011
Companies Team Up to Deliver an Enhanced Memory Test Solution Specifically for High-Capacity Memory Server Systems

IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Netlist, Inc. (Nasdaq: NLST), a designer and manufacturer of high-performance memory subsystems, today announced its alliance with Santa Clara, CA-based Ultra-X, a provider of hardware and software diagnostic solutions for the IT industry. The two companies are working together to deliver an enhanced memory test product that will greatly reduce test session time for High-Capacity server systems. With support from Netlist, Ultra-X's RAM Stress Test (RST) Premium, a memory diagnostic tool designed for the rigorous testing needs of server and memory manufacturers, has been enhanced to significantly reduce test session time while also preserving RST's test coverage.

"Ultra-X is constantly pushing the memory testing barrier to the highest limits," said Tom Anderson, vice president of sales & marketing at Ultra-X. "With Netlist's HyperCloud™ memory module, we were able to push our testing capabilities to higher capacities and speeds which standard memory does not allow. Our latest technology easily handles up to 512GB memory capacity in servers while significantly reducing test times – allowing OEMs, system builders and memory manufacturers to increase test efficiency and lower development costs."

"With Ultra-X RST-Pro now supporting up to 512GB, our mutual customers can accelerate the development of high memory density systems," said Steve McClure, Netlist vice president of worldwide sales and marketing. "With this enhancement, RST-Premium streamlines the test process for high capacity memory systems, establishing HyperCloud as the high density memory module standard."
